Edit: Father John Zuhlsdorf is being kicked out of the People's Republic of Madison because of some of his spiritual activities which we are certain anger the Devil, but also the Devil's bishop in Madison. It's interesting how the evil one and his legions become aware of the Rite of Exorcism and descend like a dragon upon those who invoke it and assist it.
As we noted, the evil ordinary of Madison is complaining about Father Zuhlsdorf's exorcisms against the evil demons committing election fraud. It isn't so much to complain about separation of Church and State, arguable, concern for the purity of the electoral process isn't a partisan issue, it's a matter of federal law. As one of the commenters on the fruity "Where Peter Is" blog complains, if it had been James Martin complaining about the debunked "Russian Collusion" or the need for more progressive sexual practices in the world today, his ordinary certainly wouldn't be going after him.
My years in my adoptive Diocese of Madison have be fruitful on many levels. However, I’ve have discerned that – while I still can – I need to be closer to family. I’m not getting younger and neither are they. That, in itself, requires me to relocate in the not too distant future, to move, or at least to spend long stretches of time in places other than in Madison. I’ve discussed this with necessary parties. That’s in the works. I thank God and many others who have been so good to me here. I’ll be around, however, and I won’t be a stranger.
I've wondered at things Father Z has done for years, but he's always had the right enemies. From his former superior at his first parish assignment, an comfortable and breezy Italian who regularly reads America Magazine and doubts scriptural inerrancy, to the various goblin imps and demonic episcopal trolls who are attacking him now. Perhaps this move, as FatherZ himself notes, will be a very positive thing for him.
I once DM'd him on FB that I thought a lot of criticisms leveled at him that he doesn't really seem to be engaged as a legitimate priest would be alleviated if he livestreamed daily Mass and the Office. I don't know if he ever read my suggestion, but he has been quite industrious about getting Mass and devotions out on video. He continues to catechize and inform faithful Catholics everywhere, and that's a good thing.
I would also like to personally thank FatherZ for offering Mass for my health when my saturation levels were hovering around 88%!
